Our client, an Australian entrepreneur, wanted to launch a gaming website that would bring together game enthusiasts and would provide them with a new interactive skill based game. Each game (a combination of crossword puzzles and general knowledge questions) aims to stimulate players’ mental and research abilities and is available in a multi-player environment wherein players or teams of players can compete against each other to the first to score the maximum points. Players earn points for each crossword clue/question solved. The solution delivered by Icreon allows our client to run and operate an online gaming club with ease. Back-end interfaces have been provided allowing game administrators to schedule games, and track them. Players, in turn, can register to play for any of the scheduled games.

Recommendations

Outsourcing web development efforts can yield drastically different results depending on who you partner with. In the end, success depends on so many factors far beyond code development itself - strong project management skills, the ability to balance a strategic vision and end user needs with technical realities, discipline in execution, steady productivity, honesty, and a positive attitude in dealing with unexpected challenges and changes to name a few. I've found that those who can consistently deliver on these key attributes are rare.
